By default, you can copy one item to the video board. This is true for any and everything devices that have a copy / folder function. The board manager on Windows 11 is a different feature that needs to be enabled. It will work with the standard video board.

A word of warning

We should warn you about the things you copy to your bulletin board once you have enabled the dashboard history. Normally, if you were copying sensitive information eg credit card number, to the video board, you could remove it by copying something else or by wiping the notice board. With the history of the video board, this will not be enough. You have to manually enter the Clipboard history window and remove the object and you have to be diligent about it.


If you choose to sync your card history across devices, you will need to connect a Microsoft account to your system, and to the system to which you want to sync history. This feature is optional, so if you’re using a local account, and don’t want to sync clipboard history, you can skip adding a Microsoft account.
